  • Simeon Rice CUT

    The Buccaneers have reportedly cut DE Simeon Rice.
    It's not exactly a shocker, as Rice was due to count over $10 million against the salary cap in 2007, far too much for a player his age (33) coming off a potentially career-threatening shoulder injury. Gaines Adams should instantly move into the starting lineup at right end. Rice, who is second among active sackers with 121, should find work if he's up for passing a physical.

        I don't think it matters if they know or not he is going to be making to much money to not be on the field.

            Id like Seattle to get him if he comes kinda cheap for like a year or two. Tapp can come off the bench and steal time from Rice. Rice and Kearney would be a great DE duo even though they are old.

              tapp is currently a backup DE as it is..so bringing in Rice would make him 3rd :\

                Well if they got Rice they wold probably cut Bryce Fisher. But Fisher could backup one DE side and Tapp could backup the other.

                  Interesting. I can see a contender signing him as a rotational player.

                    Loooks like the Bucs need to free up a roster spot for a QB.

                        I could see STL signing him to rotate with the guy they got from Det or to Azi to play 3-4 OLB and some 4-3 DE.

                            If I was Atlanta I would sign him for 1M... have him back up the RE spot and have a Rice-Abraham combo on pass rush downs and a Anderson-Davis combo on run downs.

                              You have to think DET might make a move for him fast b/c I remember back in February/March rumors circulating that Rice would get cut and the Lions would sign him and the Lions never did a whole lot to adress the DE position (drafted the dude from Hawaii, who is more of a developmental player anyways) so the interest should still be there, adding an edge rusher could really help them and you know Marinelli is gonna put pressure on management to sign him.
